SONGS THAT REMIND ME OF MY CHILDHOOD     GAMES THAT REMIND ME OF MY CHILDHOOD    
STUART'S PANORAMIC WORLD     MASTERTRONIC - WHAT IF?     TREKKIE DAD AND SUPER SOPHIE

The random ramblings of a Star Trek-obsessed schools ICT Systems Manager who likes a good moan.
This is a place where I can whinge about life, and express my love of my family, 80's music, retro computer gaming (especially on my Commodore 64),
 oh and Star Trek. I'm very open with my opinions and I like a good moan. If you don't like what I say, then you might want to consider not reading this blog.

Songs that remind me of my childhood Number 24 - Live It Up (Mental as Anything)

Well, it's been a while since I posted a childhood musical memory.  Plenty going on in my life, but the biggest highlight was going to the cinema to watch Star Trek Into Darkness (More about that later).  For now, I want to share with you the next "Song that reminds me of my childhood"......

 
Live It Up was a big hit for Australian new-wave group Mental as Anything and was released back in 1986.  It reached number 3 in the UK charts, and was featured in the crap Paul Hogan movie "Crocodile Dundee".  Ok that does it no favours, but have a listen.  It's fun and lively - typical mid 80's pop.

As with Invisible Touch by Genesis, this is another song that reminds me of family nights out walking from Leigh-On-Sea to Southend.  Many of the pubs we visited would play this on the jukebox whilst I drank my drink (a pint of orange juice) and played classic arcade games. 

Ahhhhhhh the memories.
